Replacement Foam for the Grips on my 1100?

The foam on the stock(?) hand grips on my 1983 1100I is deteriorating and needing replacement. Is there a source where I can get this foam and just slip it over the ends and into place?

I did buy OEM rubber grips but don't care for the feel of them. If I do decide to put them on, how do I get off the current grips? The throttle has the lock on it and I'll assume I'll lose this option if I take off the existing grip?

Sorry for the dumb questions, I'm still figuring out this new to me bike.

you should be able to pull the grips off try twisting them as you pull, this should not effect the lock for the cruse control. you can buy those grips from a number of sites.
